Affiliates and the Reg Path: Traffic Spam

I’m seeing more and more affiliates attempting to monetize the registration path of their offers before the traffic redirects to the merchant or network’s offer page. A few “affiliate gurus” at the Affiliate Summit were even prescribing a complicated version of this method to “better monetize traffic.”

I’m not comfortable with this approach, and find it incredibly disruptive for both the visitor, affiliate and merchant.

How are merchants combating this sort of tactic?
